Every detail is perfect in this Poplar Point waterfront home, from the bluestone patio surrounding the saltwater pebble-tech pool to the rustic white oak, wide plank floors throughout the main level. As you step into the gracious foyer, your eye travels through the wall of glass ahead in the family room and out to the pool area and Church Creek beyond. There is a formal dining room to the right and home office/den on the left. The great room configuration, though, is the heart of the house: a spacious family room adjacent to the casual dining area and gourmet kitchen overlooking the water. The family room includes a quarry stone surround fireplace and cherry built-in bookshelves. The wall of windows really brings the outside in and, in warmer months, friends and family can easily access the pool area from the 8 ft tall French doors. The chef’s kitchen has a gorgeous marble backsplash and granite counters; all the cabinets were hand-made by Pennsylvania artisans. The mudroom includes a pantry and access to the 3-car garage. The main level also includes a sunroom and powder room. There is beautiful trim detailing throughout.
Upstairs, one finds the most incredible master bedroom suite! The huge bedroom has a vaulted ceiling with millwork details and a double-sided gas fireplace separates the sleeping area from the sitting room — the entire waterside of the room is windows. The closet is the size of a New York City studio apartment, complete with custom built-ins. The spa bath includes separate granite topped vanities, a “bubble” tub, and an oversized shower that has multiple body sprays and showerheads. The second bedroom on this level has an ensuite bathroom. The third bedroom has waterviews. Two additional bedrooms are each ample in size and have large closets. There is a hall bathroom with hand-made vanity, and a laundry room that is big enough for lots of helpers.
The lower level is the perfect game room; there’s also a full bathroom. The systems for the house are also here, including water treatment (both in house and sprinkler water are treated). The home was constructed with a poured concrete foundation and 2 x 6″ framing, inside walls AND outside walls. Plus, every interior and exterior wall as well as between each floor is insulated. The exterior is low maintenance Hardiplank with quarried stone accent and oversized gutters. The pool area includes an outdoor kitchen under the pergola, with two ceiling fans, a propane grill and cooktop, and a refrigerator. The propane firepit was featured on the cover of Country Casual magazine!
The private pier on protected Church Creek has 6+ ft water depth, and it’s just a few minutes by boat out to the South River. There is a shared pier agreement with the next door neighbor; the side belonging to this home has a 27,000 lb boat lift as well as a 10,000 lb boat lift, and a floating dock. This home really has every detail perfect and it is in the desirable Poplar Point neighborhood. There’s excellent access to shopping and commute routes and schools include Central Middle and South River High.
